In this two-day Certified ScrumMaster training course, you will apply the Scrum framework to build a new product. You will learn what it feels like to be on a Scrum teamexperiencing many of the challenges you’re likely to face—while being coached by someone involved with the application of Scrum at many organizations. This “learning by doing” style of instruction demands your open mind and active participation.

What is a Scrum and ScrumMaster?
An Agile Project Manager emphasizes facilitation, leadership and communication over traditional command-and-control activities. In the Scrum framework, this role is called “ScrumMaster” as a constant reminder of the differences between agile and traditional project management. The ScrumMaster’s role is to maximize the team’s efforts toward its goals while removing the impediments that stand in its way.
